Coláiste Iósaef – Student Council

Student Leadership

The promotion of student leadership is an important part of our core values. In Coláiste Iósaef our students are given the opportunity to engage in school leadership through the Student Council and the House System.

Student Council

A Student Council is a representative structure through which students in a post-primary school can become involved in the affairs of the school, working in partnership with school management and staff and parents for the benefit of the school and its students.

In Coláiste Iósaef, we are fortunate to have a very active and involved Student Council. The main role of our Student Council is “to promote the interests of the college and the involvement of students in the affairs of the college, in co-operation with the board, parents and teachers”.

In addition, four House Reps also attend Student Council meetings.

Our Student Council Aims:

  • To promote an environment conducive to educational and personal development
  • To promote friendship and respect among pupils
  • To support the management and staff in the development of the school
  • To represent the views of the students on matters of general concern to them

Head Boy and Head Girl

These are the most significant student positions in the school and the choice of candidates reflects the high regard that they are held in by members of the school community.

The Head Boy and Head Girl represent not just the students, but the whole school community and must be capable of fulfilling a variety of roles and responsibilities from the everyday routine to meeting visiting dignitaries and public speaking at school events. The names of the Head Boy and Head Girl will be engraved in a Roll of Honour in the school.
